Fallen Timbers Battlefield consists of 187 acres of open field with a wooded area near the center. The property, owned by Metroparks of the Toledo Area, is bounded on the east by I-475, on the south by US-24, on the west by a proposed retail and commercial development, and on the north by an additional commercial property. A railroad spur cuts through the northwest corner of the battlefield. The property is generally flat, with a small swale in the woods on the south edge of the site and terminating at US-24.
The site formerly thought to be the location of the battlefield, 0.25 mile south of the actual site and on the floodplain along the Maumee River, was included in the 1959 National Survey of Historic Sites and Buildings as one of 22 sites representing the national historic theme “The Advance of the Frontier, 1763-1830.” It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960, signifying “the culminating event which demonstrated the tenacity of the American people in their efforts of western expansion through the struggle for dominance in the Old Northwest Territory.” The National Historic Landmark designation is being corrected to identify the actual battle site.
